Thanks for the replies and the excellent illustration Little Pixel. My Q/R (for lack of a better name) has, really, no "active" (threads in the "B" top part of your illustration) because of a washer-- but works fine with just the lower threads engaged.
Will seach the nuts and bolts bin here for the right bolt.
